    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of ADVISE AND CONSENT, FAMILY GUY
    PRESENTS STEWIE GRIFFIN: THE UNTOLD STORY, MEMORIES OF MURDER, A MOMENT
    OF INNOCENCE, NBA FURIOUS FINISHES, ONG BAK: THE THAI WARRIOR, RYAN,
    SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE: THE BEST OF JOHN BELUSHI, and WITHOUT WARNING:


    ADVISE AND CONSENT (reviewed by Maurice Cobbs, overall score 98/100):
    "It is perhaps the height of irony that Advise and Consent should have
    been released on DVD when it was, as several controversial presidential
    appointments were debated in the news; and now, with two Supreme Court
    vacancies to boot, has there ever been a more timely and relevant DVD?"

    FAMILY GUY PRESENTS STEWIE GRIFFIN: THE UNTOLD STORY (reviewed by Brett
    Cullum, overall score 85/100):
    "It's certainly nothing new, so don't expect more than three episodes
    with a few funny gags and a raunchy vignette to bookend everything. I
    laughed, I was entertained, and I giggled when they cursed. Other than
    some blue dialogue, it's still the same old Family Guy you can currently
    catch every Sunday night on Fox."

    MEMORIES OF MURDER (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall score 95/100):
    "Leave it to the South Koreans to do just that. Put simply, Memories of
    Murder is spectacular; but more importantly, it is exactly the kind of
    raw and powerful cop drama that Hollywood only wishes it could still
    produce. "

    A MOMENT OF INNOCENCE (reviewed by Joe Armenio, overall score 94/100):
    "The great Iranian filmmakers are always asking: How does one tell the
    truth through film? With A Moment of Innocence, Makhmalbaf has answered
    his own question, and anyone who loves the medium should be grateful to
    him for that."

    NBA FURIOUS FINISHES (reviewed by Lacey Worrell, overall score 88/100):
    "The fact that this particular compilation focuses on the talents of
    players who peaked ten to fifteen years ago may be particularly welcome
    to those who have soured on the bad press the NBA has received of late.
    Watch, enjoy, and prepare to be astonished as great moments of the game
    unfold before you."

    ONG BAK: THE THAI WARRIOR (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 90/100):
    "This isn't a thinking man's action movie. This is an action man's
    action movie."

    RYAN (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 94/100):
    "Landreth's style of animation makes Ryan much more than a documentary.
    We hear the two men talk and share their ideas, but we're also able to
    see what is going on inside their psyches. Bursts of colors and shapes
    emerge as thoughts, both reinforcing and subverting the words that the
    characters utter."

    SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE: THE BEST OF JOHN BELUSHI (reviewed by Ryan Keefer,
    overall score 85/100):
    "It's John's brother Jim who puts it best, in the book Live From New
    York by Tom Shales and James Miller: 'He led us in comedy, he led us in
    film, and he led us into rehab. He was before all of us.'"

    WITHOUT WARNING (reviewed by Erick Harper, overall score 83/100):
    "This is the most un-gritty noir I have ever seen."
